RE: [Chrysler300] Rear Pinion Seal

Whenever I need a seal I go to my neighborhood legitimate parts store or
NAPA as a last resort and from the Mopar # or the old part number if it had
been replaced before, they can look up the od and id and cross reference to
a new seal part #


I have purchased all of my '52 Dodge, '55 - C300 and '46 Chrysler seals and
bearings this way. In stock or one day away. The seals are usually "thinner"
and you need to be careful to seat them in permatex or silicone correctly to
line up with the polished area of the rotating surface.


I have 100's of NOS seals that I refuse to use because the
rubber/rawhide/etc is 60+ years old.

Hello Everyone,

The rear pinion seal took a crap on my 55, so I took the easy way out and
ordered the "correct" seal from Rock Auto.  Turns out it's not the right
part and other online stores like Advance and Auto Zone also sell the same
wrong seal (#7216).  The seal had a number of 6845 and the mechanic I had do
it couldn't get that from anyone.  I called NAPA and they had nothing listed
for a 55 300 at all, but they did end up ordering the seal for a 55 Imperial
and low and behold it's the correct seal #21336.  The good news is that the
mechanic charged me $100 out the door.  My Dad thought that was pricey, but
he wasn't the one that was going to be doing the work.  Just sharing in case
lightning strikes twice.  

Hopefully I will see some of you at Carlisle next week.  My Dad and I will
be on the show field.
